HCC, cirrhotomimetic HCC, or cirrhosis-like HCC(6–14).
Portal vein invasion is a known complicated feature of HCC, occurring by direct local venous extension or metastatic spread. However, the initial presentation of HCC as an isolated portal vein thrombosis is incredibly rare, with very few cases reported in the English literature to date(15).
We, herein, present an unusual case of HCC initially presenting as an isolated malignant portal vein thrombosis without any other findings suggesting HCC

The presence of duplicated femoral vein (DFV) is an important anatomical variation which has been shown to result in false negative compression ultrasound results during evaluation for deep venous thrombosis(2–4). The ultrasound probe may be focused on one of the branches that does not have a thrombus, whereas the thrombus may be lodged in the other branches. This may result in misdiagnosis with serious consequences such as pulmonary embolism, post-thrombotic syndrome and

case describes duplication of the inferior vena cava coexisting with multiple anomalies of the renal and hepatic veins. Most typically, IVC anomalies are diagnosed by accident in patients who do not present any symptoms. However, such anomalies are often considered as a potential cause of deep vein thrombosis due to slow vascular flow and numerous collateral vessels. In addition, there is a risk of varicose veins due to the compression of anomalously positioned venous vessels(1).
The incidence of

The clinical presentation of VTE is dependent on the location of the thrombosis and may be non-specific, generally the signs and symptoms include:
Deep vein thrombosis – peripheral oedema, unilateral limb pain and erythema.
Pulmonary embolism – chest pain, dyspnoea, haemoptysis, tachycardia and syncope.
Long-term morbidity includes pulmonary hypertension and post-thrombotic syndrome. Post-thrombotic syndrome is common and is estimated to occur in 1 in 3

Increasing evidence indicates that blood platelets contribute to diverse processes that extend beyond hemostasis. Many of the same mechanisms that play a role in hemostasis and thrombosis facilitate platelets the participation in other physiological and pathological processes, particularly in the inflammation, the immune response and central nervous system disorders. Platelets are involved in pathophysiology of central nervous system diseases, especially in the pathogenesis of multiple

compressive stockings, sequential compressive sleeves and the use of LMWH (standard recommendation of 40mg subcutaneously daily) all assist in the prevention of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), the collective term being VTE (Joanna Briggs, 2016). These complications remain a major cause of morbidity and a significant cause of mortality in hospitalized patients across Australia and internationally (The Australian & New Zealand Working Party on the Management and Prevention of

The contribution of a local inflammatory reaction and abnormal bone turnover with excessive osteoclast activity might play a role in the etiopathogenesis of this disease. As a result, osseous and articular destruction progresses rapidly leading to irreversible deformity of the foot. Avoiding weight-bearing and resting the foot in a specially selected plaster cast is the most important part of treatment. Patients
